that into your browser what you find is you land on the nra home page. you get redirected to the national rifle association, to the opposite side of the gun reform argument. and that is because organizing for action failed to register their own natural domain names when they launched. the website tech president noticed this on monday. organizing for action failed to get organizingforaction.net, organizingforaction.org or organizingforaction.com. so all of those sites have been swooped by republicans and nra supporters. seriously? yeah. come on now, wow. but in the department of clouds and silver linings, if these embarrassing early fails from supposedly the greatest political geniuses on earth, if these failures are kind of a cloud when it comes to the prospects for gun reform, around this cloud is also a silver lining, and her name is debbie halvorson. debbie halvorson is a democrat from illinois. she used to serve as majority of the state senate and then spent two years in congress. but now that jesse jackson jr. has resigned, debbie halvorson is one of many democrats who have thrown their ha
heard it. the belief of the nra is the second amendment has to give american citizens the fire power to fight back against you. so how do you conduct your business in enforcing the law in not knowing what is behind that door? >> i find it to be scary, creepy, and simply just not based on logic. >> jennifer: it's based on fantasy and fear mongering but that never stopped the opposition before, and it is not going to now. they keep pushing the nra argument that citizens need to be completely armed to protect themselves against the tyrannical government, and not just to protect themselves from police, but also in case the police can't be there to protect them. and why wouldn't the police be there? maybe because of the budget cuts, the same budget cuts that have been pushed for before republicans across the country. here is south carolina republican senator, lindsey graham on this subject. >> the reason i'm going to oppose the legislation, chief johnson, is because i respect what you do as a law enforcement officer. has your budget been cut? >> yes. >> do you think
to get it. at today's hearing, the head of the nra actually argued we don't need any new gun laws. >> proposing more gun laws while failing to enforce the thousands we already have? it's not a serious solution for reducing crime. >> not a serious solution to reducing crime. we've heard enough from the nra. it's time they follow some simple advice from her own statement today. be bold. be courageous. we've heard enough and we've seen enough. the time is now. joining me now is lorie hauss, whose daughter, emily, survived being shot in the virginia tech massacre in 2007 and clarence page. >> lorie, let me start with you. you were at the hearing today. don't our elected leaders need to show the courage gabby showed today? >> absolutely, reverend sharpton. thanks for having me on the show. >> thank you for coming. >> frankly, we need leadership from all of our rep zen tifrs. and, you know, we demand courage from them. but, frankly, you know, it shouldn't take much courage to stand up to the nra. courage is, you know, facing down the barrel of a gun. and, you know, my daughter did that.
of the n.r.a. as he spoke to reporters following the shooting in newtown, connecticut, which he says should be a broad solution. [video clip] >> is the press and political class here in washington, d.c. so consumed by fear and hatred of the n.r.a. and american gun owners that you are willing to accept a world where real resistance to evil monsters is alone, unarmed, school principal left to surrender her life -- her life -- to shield children in her care? no one, regardless of personal, political project dis, -- prejudice, has the right to impose that sacrifice. ladies and gentlemen, there's no national one size fits all solution to protecting our childr children. but do know this president zeroed out school of urgency planning grants in last year's bucket and scrapped secure our schools policing grants in next year's budget. with all of the foreign aid the united states does, with all the money in the federal budget, can't we afford to put a police officer in every single school? even if they did that, politicians have no business and no authority denying us the raoeigh right, ability an
husband, mark kelly, an nra ceo wayne lapierre also testified. this hearing is just under four hours. [no audio] >> we have more than 200 people here today and hundreds more watching on our committee web cast. i expect everybody in this room to be respectful of the senators and the witnesses speaking about this very serious subject. i do not want applause for or against any position. the capitol police have been notified to remove any audience interference in an effort to have orderly conduct for that. that is a warning i give the many hearings. we will hear a lot of perspective on gun violence. i will give opening statements. but we have a former member of congress here, gaby giffords who will give a brief message and believed and captain kelly, thank you for your help in bringing your wife here. ms. giffords - >> ok. thank you for inviting me here today. this is an important conversation for our children, for our communities, for democrats and republicans. speaking is difficult but i need to say something important. violence is a big problem. too many children are dying too many childre
since the newtown shootings. executive vice president of the eight nra wayne lapierre at yesterday's. [video clip] >> it's an honor to be here on behalf of 4.5 million moms, dads, sons, daughters in every state across our nation who make up the national rifle association of america. there are 4.5 million active members of the nra. they are joined by tens of millions of supporters throughout the country. it is on behalf of those millions of decent, hard- working, law-abiding citizens that i am here today to give voice to their concerns. the title of today's hearing is "what should america do about gun violence?" we believe the answer is to be honest about what works and honest about what does not work. teaching safe and responsible gun ownership works. the nra has a long and proud history of doing exactly that. our child safety program has taught 25 million young children that if they see a gun, they should do four things. stop, don't touch, the area, call an adult. as a result of this and other private-sector programs, fatal firearms accidents are at the lowest level in 100 years.
and their ultrapowerful lobbying group the nra. the latest push coming from senator dianne feinstein, the california democrat who authored the nation's original ban on assault weapons in the 1990s, but this ban would reportedly be much more strict. it would trap current gun owners and outlaw the future sale of some handguns and shotguns. joe johns joins us from washington, i understand that senator feinstein will show up holding a bushmaster. >> reporter: we don't know if she'll be holding it but we know she is going to have some weapons present that would be banned under her proposal, that would include bushmaster, as you know, they're fairly well-known, a bushmaster was we believe used by the shooter in newtown, connecticut. now, we know the broad outlines of what feinstein is likely to promow propose. it's been public for weeks. we look for detail, we expect a revised ban on the so-called military style assault weapons led to believe that means banning the sale, transfer, importation or manufacturing of about 150 firearms, some rifles, even possibly handguns, shotguns, fitted with for example det
was there holding a sign saying "the nra has blood on its hands." she was taken out by security as one of the heads of the nra spoke. this is "democracy now!," democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. the piece ball, which was held at the mead center for american theater, was thought affiliated with any party. thousands came out. the number of official balls celebrating open as an operation is down from 10 in 2009 to just two this year. this time obama agreed to except unlimited corporate funding. donors have been offered a number of sponsorship options including the top tier of $1 million for institutions, $250,000 for individuals. in contrast, corporate lobbyists and political action committee donors were banned in 2009. individual contributions were capped at $50,000. several of the nation's best powerful corporate lobbying forces are bankrolling this year's festivities including at&t, microsoft, southern co. which have collectively spent almost $160 million on lobbying since obama first took office. today's ceremony falls on the third anniversary of one of the supreme court
. is the nra changing their tune on gun control? >> reporter: no, they are not. david keen is still steamed that obama administration is putting emphasis on it. he doesn't think he is tag their concerns seriously. >> we wish instead of talking about guns specifically that they question that they would address what can we do to prevent these kinds of things in the future. the evidence shows that an assault weapons ban are not going to do that. what will do it is doing something about a broken mental health system that allows people that potentially violent to be the streets. >> reporter: furthermore, the nra is making it clear they don't think there are enough members of congress that favor an assault weapons ban to pass one. >> gregg: it's quite the face-off. is the nra's position cautioning the gun control advocates to back down at all? >> no, some are wondering out loud how much clout they have in 2013. >> the nra spent a lot of money on the elections last cycle. they didn't have a lot to show for it especially if you look at results. a lot of their candidates lost. we are looking at retu
hearing on gun control begins this morning on capitol hill. the nra is expected to tell lawmakers that an assault weapons been a and back kbrou kbround -- background checks had not serious efforts to stem gun violence. gabby gifford's husband, mark kelly, is also expected to testify at the hearing. >>> in trenton, new jersey, authorities are touting the haul of weapons now off the streets thanks to a gun buyback program, bringing in 2600 hand guns. someone even turned in a rocket launcher. the state paid out $324,000 for the weapons, no questions asked. >>> a federal court is upholding san francisco's new nudity ban, so keep it under wraps. a judge ruled the ordinance does not violate first amendment rights. activists challenged the rule arguing the right to strip down is a freedom of expression. the ban covers public areas across san francisco and goes into effect friday. >>> a memento from mickey mantle's baseball career. a special ring has been found. just 536 so-called career rings were made, one for each of his home runs. the one in question belonged to his youngest son and i
they're democrats or republicans are bowing to the nra. they're not representing gun owners they're represent be begun manufacturers. and it's a shame. it's their job to represent what the people want. not the corporations, not the gun sellers and that's being missed in this debate. >> jennifer: it is, but i know joe biden was out having a fireside google hang out trying to persuade, and i'm glad the administration is taking the case on the road. karl frisch, professor jason johnson thank you for joining me inside "the war room." >> thank you. >> thanks, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. in the 41 days since the tragedy at newtown, 41 days now, at least 1121 americans have died due to gun violence. of course, those who die are just a fraction of the victims of gun violence. 13-year-old gabriel clark of massachusetts is still recovering after being shot last friday. it's tragic that something so horrific could happen to someone so young but the circumstances are even worse. gabriel was walking to his church to attend choir practice when a car drove past him. someone from the car sho
point. you are absolutely right that nra members are not necessarily in sync with the impression that nothing could happen on guns. about a year ago, republican pollster frank luntz conducted a poll of nra members and found overwhelming support for common sense regulations like universal background checks. 40% of guns are sold at gun shows or through the internet. there is an overwhelming number of nra members, gun owners, and just the general public who support these provisions. as well, the high capacity magazines to over 60% of americans, including gun owners, support limiting those high capacity magazines. it is a question of just some lore that has built up since 1994, when, after bill clinton got the assault weapons ban through, he lost his majority in the house, and the democrats have been essentially scared of the issue since then. but i think, you know, as part of this new strategy of winning public pressure to bear things done, it is possible that if the democrats and some moderate republicans continue to highlight these numbers, many americans, including gun owners, su
's going to get primaried or whatever by the nra. it has to be something because that should have passed. >> bill: i guess your cell phone cut out. i'm sorry. no. you made a good point. no. i don't understand why the change either why given -- there were enough democratic votes. i said that of before. why, given this opportunity, and particularly given the fact everybody in this country knows that the congress is broken. look everybody knows it needs fixing. and here they just refused to do it. bad news for us. bad news. >> this is "the bill press show." (vo) current tv gets the converstion started weekdays at 9am eastern. @ [ music ] >> chatting with you live a lot current.com/billpress. this is "the bill press show" live on your radio and current tv. >> bill: hey, how about it, 33 minutes after the hour on this friday january 25th. we are talking about the filibuster, the great big filibuster reform. this was going to be the year we did it. ain't going to happen. harry reef caved in, made a deal with mitch mcconnell which basically leaves things ju
gail trotter from denver university, david couple and wayne lapierre from the nra. on the other side mark kelly, gabby giffords's husband former astronaut, and sheriff captain james johnson from baltimore county in full uniform. both kelly and johnson spoke about the need for background checks especially captain johnson saying -- telling the senator, stand with law enforcement. i'm here representing ah law enforcement officers across this country. we are out gunned today. we need the guns. people should not have easy access to them, stand with us for banning assault weapons. they have supported the feinstein bill and for background checks. but then the other side got up -- this woman gail trotter said that every mother needs an ak-15 in her home to protect her kids with all of the high-capacity magazines she can get. this guy coppel said you can't have background checks because then the government will know where every gun is and they will come to your door and seize them. and then wayne lapierre, their whole solution is let's make every school an armed camp.
balance to the nra. there is an organization called americans nor responsible solutions that they are launching today and they make the argument that until now the gun lobby's political contributions have not been matched by others, that is about to change, no longer is what they write, is that how you see it? >> clearly that's their strategy, but again it all comes down to the sort of nuts and bolts of it. what is it that they are proposing? when you get into dash tkaerbg, if you want to create a nation hal database of people who are mentally unstable and shouldn't be getting guns, well do you think maybe that there might be some objection? forget the nra, do you think there might be some objection to epg keeping -- the government keeping a list of mentally unstable people? do you think maybe the aclu, or maybe some other group, psychiatric group might have some objection to the federal government doing that sort of thing stphao. bill: thing? criminals and the mentally ill can easily purchase guns by aeu sroeug avoid -gsing background checks. >> there are laws who preve

to splinter a key part of nra constituency and sway parts of congress from positive gun parts of the country to sign in. >> the ability of a member, particularly one with struggling with difficult politics at home. the ability of that member to go home and have that factually based conversation with people in the audience who may start out angry, but then to get them to feel better when they know their gun and their shooting buddies' guns are protected, makes a big difference. >> reporter: here is the problem. for the growing number of sports shooters who use so-called assault weapons and extended magazines at firing ranges or for hunting. they wouldn't be able to buy ar-15s and many other rifles anymore. >> most sportsmen are using some other type of weapon, there are also recreational shooters and many of them engage, myself included, in the occasional shooting of an ar-style rifle. >> reporter: it's clear the national rifle association isn't getting on board with any of this. as executive vice president wayne la pierre said in a speech this week. >> we believe in the right to defend ourse
this happen to our children? you know when we have been meeting with the n.r.a. over the last few weeks. trying to find how we could work together, it's been frustrating but i still have great hope. but to be honest with you, i'm not going to trust them to be there for the tough votes. that's why all of us and the president, by the way, and the vice president biden, and those of us who are going to be fighting for this, are going to spread the word to the corners of this country. n.r.a. members have been speaking out to get something done. these are good law-abiding citizens. they want to hunt. they want to go duck hunting. the guns they use in duck hunting you're allowed three bullets. deer hunting, depending on what state you're in, only allows five bullets. most hunters tell you if you don't get it on the first try you probably won't get it on the second one. yet, we have these machine, we have large magazines that can take down 20 children in seconds. the only reason that will slaughter stopped because our first responders were there and the killer ended up taking his life. some peo
, the public sees what's going on, and the recommendations. host: do you support the nra? are you a member? guest: yes. host: now to the phone. good morning. caller: my question has to do with budgets. the house has sent a budget to the senate. the senate has failed to act on that. they have had no budget of their own. the president presented his budget to the house which was defeated. 414-0 with no democratic support. what will it take to get the senate to pass a budget? everybody's talking about deficit control. that all begins with having a budget. guest: we not only need a budget, we need a balanced budget amendment to the constitution, which i have always supported. we have to not only get our budget through the senate, which i am pushing to do. the republicans are not the majority, so we have to get to push a balanced budget through the senate as well as the house. but we have to have a balanced budget amendment. host: john hoven spent 10 years as governor of north dakota. what's the better job? guest: i would say being governor most. of the senators here, who were former governors,

. but it's their option. schools want it or they don't. >> i think you're right because the nra wants it. >> they want it. the president -- >> what do you think of that, reverend? do you want a guy standing there with a pistol or a rifle for 30 years? >> i don't support putting police in schools. i think there's a lot of reasons that you don't but i think that the way that they did it that kept a lot of progressives from screaming is they said, it's the option of the school district and then you've got to go in the school district and organize against it. i think that's the way it was dealt with. but i want to say in terms of the immigration, an aside from that issue, the most emotional moment i saw today other than some of the things the president said was when justice sotomayor stepped up to swear in biden. because i was sitting there and you could feel the whole latino community rise up and everybody stood up clapping. >> biden for president. >> i was able to talk to her afterwards. that was a very emotional and historic moment, the first time in history that we have seen a hispanic s
. this is something the president has said should be left to the schools, the nra says should be part of a national plan. it will be interesting given the poll numbers. the entrenched interests in washington not on the president's side. we'll see what he does there. one other thing i want to note. the president talked about how immigrants in this country should be allowed to go to school and then become the leaders of the next generation, not be deported. well, remember, it was his administration, this is the bush administration here, deportations of illegal immigrants, it was the obama administration that angered many latinos, and especially latino interest groups by increasing the number of deportations. the president is hoping now that this actually gives him some credibility as he tries to negotiate an immigration reform package with republicans. and anderson, one of the things we have seen since the election is the republicans know the math. they see the demographics of this country. they realize they have a crisis. they cannot be a viable national party if they keep getting such a tiny percen
